Night and Day is the twenty first book in the series by Iris Johansen featuring the character Eve Duncan. This particular story line though began in book nineteen and has been it’s own little trilogy within the overall series so I won’t give any details directly about this story so I don’t spoil it for anyone at this point but just a brief glimpse at the overall plot involved in all three books. This third of the trilogy picks up right at the ending of Hide Away.
Eve Duncan is a forensic sculptor, she gives a face to children who have been found murdered in an effort to try to bring justice to their killers. When she gets a phone call from a sheriff in California she agrees to work on the skull of a 9 year old who begins to speak to Eve as she works. Jenny can’t remember much at first but she insists that Eve was meant to help her find out what happened to her. Eve becomes determined to find justice for Jenny and help bring in her killer.
While I’ve enjoyed reading all three books in this story line the first was definitely my favorite as it was the one that dealt with the forensic side of the case. But all three have been a high intensity action packed ride all involving that first case that Eve started working with. There’s a paranormal element added to each of the stories with the first and the third seeming like that was more prominent in the books.
Overall, 3.5 stars, Iris Johansen is definitely a great writer and while I haven’t read everything by her I’d definitely recommend checking out her work from what I have read. If interested in this book you should really go back and start at book nineteen to get the start of the story.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
